Avast improperly blocks websites
« on: March 02, 2021, 02:32:57 PM »
We are having difficulties accessing the site https://loboclick.com.

Avast has blocked access.

The site has no virus problems.

How can I request an evaluation to remove this block?

Confirmed uBlock Origin also blocked me before any Avast alert.

EasyList is blocking the website, so every content blocker using EasyList will block it.
Avast webshield is blocking it as well for URL:Malvertising
